The Comedian (2016) (HNR)
Release Date: May 2, 2017.
"Robert De Niro gives one of his warmest performances. A sparkling ensemble highlighted by an absolutely lovely Leslie Mann." Tim Grierson, Screen International.
An aging comic icon, Jackie (Robert De Niro) has seen better days. Despite his efforts to reinvent his comic genius, the audience only wants to know him as the television character he once played. Already a strain on his brother (Danny DeVito) and sister-in-law (Patti LuPone), Jackie is sentenced to community service for accosting an audience member. That's where he meets Harmony (Leslie Mann), the daughter of a Florida real estate mogul (Harvey Keitel), and the two find inspiration in one another - which results in surprising consequences. -- (C) Sony Pictures, 2016, USA.
